Labor Leaders Fear Trump May Draw Large Numbers of Union Voters

Of all the voters who might be expected to resist the charms of Donald J. Trump, the two million members of the Service Employees International Union would most likely be near the top of the list.

But the union’s president, Mary Kay Henry, acknowledged that Mr. Trump holds appeal even for some of her members. “There is deep economic anxiety among our members and the people we’re trying to organize that I believe Donald Trump’s message is tapping into,” Ms. Henry said.

In expressing her concern, Ms. Henry reflected a different form of anxiety that is weighing on some union leaders and Democratic operatives: their fear that Mr. Trump, if not effectively countered, may draw an unusually large number of union voters in a possible general election matchup. This could, in turn, give Republicans a boost in swing states like Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin, all of which Mr. Obama won twice

This is a bitter pill for the Democrats and Union leaders. Trump resonates with people because he says what people are thinking.

He plays to the blue-collar xenophobic morons so what exactly is the surprise here? Oh right, there isn't any.

They damn sure ought to be worried. The Socialist/Democrats have been so busy sucking up to the Homosexuals and the Muslims....and Black Lives Matter...that the good ole Unions boys have been left out....voting for Democrats/Socialists for 3 or 4 decades has gotten them--squat...no jobs and their homes turned into places like Detroit and other once thriving cities---now dangerous rotting Democratic ghettos.

They are votes, yes. But you're severely mistaken if you believe they represent the whole of "the people".

Never intended that this represented the whole.

You are correct - I apologize. I misread your OP as saying "the people" rather than "people".

I'm a realist, that is why I think Trump will take the GOP nomination.

And because in your opinion everyone who votes REP is what you claim them to be the REPs will win in an historic landslide.
Maybe you should then move to a country more suites your 'enlightened' view on the human condition? There's lots to choose from. Trouble is they are ALL failed nation-states.

Not at all. Many, if not most Republican voters are not Trump supporters.

"Bitter pill"? Remember Scott Walker? He made the fucking union leaders/ thugs swallow a fucking cyanide pill!
'Unions' are now the last vestige of a system of union leaders stealing union dues from hard working men and women and fucking lining their pockets. Today's shop employees are no longer buying the Mafia/Union bullshit from the Jimmie Hoffa days.

It seems as though the GOP may get more of the minority vote than they did in 2007 and 2011. They aren't taking the majority of any group, but making inroads that could mean a help to the GOP if Trump is the candidate and future nominee.
Minorities line up behind … Donald Trump

Labor should vote Trump. All the Dims have done is shut down our coal mines, steel mills, textile plants, and our refineries in the interest of "climate change". And, of course, all the union labor that support the above industries (railroads) have lost their jobs as well. Not to mention all the private industry that has relocated overseas due to nazi EPA regs and overwhelming taxes.
